There was a rumour going round that we had purchased an engine for the Class 22 newbuild; well we are more than happy to now put this to rest.
We did indeed purchase the engine on the 11th August 2015 and have become the owners of Engine No.220 currently at Bury, this will shortly move to our yard in South Wales.
For more in depth information please see the attached news bulletin:
News Bulletin August 2015
The prize offered for the December draw was a Locomotive cab ride over the route of the winner’s choice, generously donated by GB Rail Freight Limited.
Project 22 are pleased to announce that the membership number drawn was 6360 and our congratulations go to Steve Bolton, who now has the enviable task of deciding which of the many routes on offer he will chose.
A further draw will take place later in 2016, for which the prize will be advised in due course, and all you have to do to get free entry is join the Society as a monthly donation member.
